Upanisa Sutta - transcendental dependent origination

Post by gavesako » Wed Apr 28, 2010 8:33 am

See http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... el277.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for Bhikkhu Bodhi's text analyzing the Sutta in detail.

I was inspired by the waterfall about 100 m away from Dhammapala monastery, and I made this video with Sutta quotes:

Dhammas flowing over into dhammas

Transcendental Dependent Arising - Upanisa Sutta, the "Discourse on Supporting Conditions".

Then also there is a new video with Bhante G:

Supporting Meditation
Bhante Gunaratana on the Upanisa Sutta (A 11), the holistic approach to supporting meditative development through cultivating virtue.

Thank you Bhante!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I haven't read the article, but would I be wrong in saying that the factors from 'knowledge and vision of things as they are' to 'knowledge of destruction of the taints' occur at, more or less, the same moment?

Here is Buddha Net's version of Bhikkhu Bodhi's work:
